It is my professional hope that at the end of each tutoring session my students will have learned above all an abiding respect for reason: a lifelong conviction that they can understand reality and make sense of the world.

CLEP Precalculus Tutoring FAQ

The CLEP Precalculus exam will test your ability to analyze algebraic and trigonometric functions, thus providing both you and your potential college program with a metric regarding your suitability for first-year calculus studies. This course marks an important point in the consolidation of years of mathematics skills and requires a significant investment of review. Whether you are still in the midst of your studies or are preparing for your CLEP exam day, a personal tutor can help you gather your mathematical knowledge and prepare to demonstrate your knowledge of the many topics covered in your precalculus course. Contact Varsity Tutors today to discuss the CLEP Precalculus tutoring options that you can be connected with.

In calculus class, you will be expected to have a baseline of algebraic, trigonometric, and function-oriented knowledge. The general properties of the major types of functions, their modifications, their graphic and numeric representations, and the process of manipulating them will all be presupposed aspects of your knowledge as you begin your collegiate calculus studies. In many ways, a precalculus class presents you with a synthetic view of many of the topics that you have covered in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Therefore, the learning that you do in this course will heavily depend upon skills that you have already gained. Your particular preparations for the CLEP exam should match your background of skills and needs. Varsity Tutors can help connect you with personal CLEP Precalculus tutors who can cater to those skills and needs.

A private tutor can help you craft a preparation program that builds on the many mathematical skills you have achieved over your past years of study, while also helping to solidify the foundations of your grasp of function-related concepts before you face the rigors of calculus. No matter what your future studies will entail, if they include calculus, it is critical that you have the firmest foundation before undertaking explicit studies in differential and integral calculus. This latter course will itself be foundational for all of the future higher mathematics studies that you undertake, as well as for many courses in the sciences, finance, and economics. Without mastery of the prerequisite knowledge taught in precalculus, your later calculus studies may require remedial attention to cover topics that you could well have learned independently long before being faced with such difficulties. Part of the benefit of having a private tutor is that you can ask questions and receive immediate feedback, something that isn't typical is most traditional classroom environments. This immediate feedback prevents you from developing any misconceptions about the elements and concepts you're studying, and it ensures that you understand each component of the subject material before moving on to something more advanced.

Regardless of what areas of precalculus you struggle with, a private CLEP Precalculus tutor is eager to help you in person or face-to-face online. If you're having a hard time understanding limits and their application, your tutor will redirect their efforts and work with you until they are confident you fully understand. If you want to brush up on imaginary and complex numbers or trigonometric equations, your tutor will prepare exercises or use whatever strategies work best and are most effective with your learning style.

The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a knowledgeable tutor to work with you on your precalculus skills today, helping you to succeed not only on the CLEP exam, but also in your future mathematics studies in the years to come. Contact Varsity Tutors today for help setting the foundations for your mathematical success by connecting you with the personal CLEP Precalculus tutoring that is offered in your area.

Recent CLEP Precalculus Tutoring Session Notes

Today we covered properties of functions e.g. addition, subtraction composition etc. We covered end behaviors of polynomial and power functions and combined the tools we have been using up to this point to start making rough sketches of n-th degree polynomials. The student continues to display strong prerequisite knowledge of the material.

Today we covered a wide variety of topics, including using the graphing calculator to find intersections and solve systems of equations, solving systems of equations by hand using both substitution and elimination methods, solving quadratic equations (both by factoring and using the quadratic formula), simplifying and manipulating radicals, logarithm basics, and trigonometry basics, including inverse trig functions. She will have a pre-calculus textbook to work from before our next session, so she will have access to a large collection of practice problems in between sections and she will be able to solidify what we go over. She catches onto concepts fairly quickly during our sessions, but what she needs most of all is practice.

We covered complex numbers. Specifically, we were focused on the algebraic properties and how to solve complex numbers. This was a good time for the student to practice, for it has been two or three weeks since she has dealt with a lot of factoring. She was handling the concept of complex numbers and did not seem too intimidated by them, we will practice more on her factoring (possibly just a little rust). More or less, this was a very uneventful session that just required her to do a lot of pencil work with the occasional nudge in the right direction.

The student has started the working on the homework from the first couple of sections in the calculus chapter. She used the intermediate value theorems, the constant, sum, quotient rules of limits; she found the limits and the discontinuities of various types of functions.

The student and I reviewed and practiced problems concerning parameterization of functions. We looked at a few different packets from class, but concentrated on the projectile motion equations. We derived the equations and worked through how to use them in multistep problems.

The student tested on past English II state assessment tests again, as we stayed with the reading parts only. We continued our strategy of him answering only 8-10 questions at a time so his brain could rest, and he again did well. He was getting between 75-82% correct all during the session, and I still feel confident this strategy, if used properly by the student, will give him a good chance of passing this test.
